A feature-length documentary about socialist, trade unionist and longest-serving Labour politician Dennis Skinner, by production company Shut Out The Light.

Raised alongside nine siblings within a mining village, Dennis has fought for the rights of the working class for over 50-years. Uncompromising in his views and with a set of incorruptible principles, Dennis is respected and feared on both sides of the House of Commons. Nature of the Beast looks at what lies behind his passion and drive, and tracks his rise from a local councillor to today, where he is one of Britain's most recognisable politicians - known as ‘The Beast of Bolsover’.

Nature of the Beast received 4 star reviews in The Guardian, Radio Times, Irish Times, Evening Standard, The Upcoming and Flickering Myth among other reviews. It received coverage on local BBC radio and regional news, was discussed during PMQs and was even a question Eggheads.

 

Nature of the Beast was released in UK cinemas in 2017 and is now available on DVD, Vimeo-on-Demand and BFI Player.
